The lady guide was so professional!! It was really amazing and cost efficient tour! I do love to join again in summer next time!
The guide is very friendly as any Icelandic people we have met. We are able to see 4 attractions in one day with sufficient time to take some photos and walk around. The price is very good as well! I will definitely recommend this tour :)
